To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Peter Hamill Hello Karl Erik, I respect your wish not to copy material from other sites. The URL of the page I copied to you is: http://www.bookwire.com/BookInfo.Author$46 The liner notes that Pete wrote for Blood On The Tracks, and for which he won a Grammy Award, are reprinted at: http://www.slopbucket.com/bob/tbob/bott.html (updated to new URL 30.03.2000 KEA) The ironic thing is of course that the notes were only on the first printing of the album sleeve, and had been removed by the time Pete won his award. They are still not printed on the CD insert, although I hope they'll reappear if Sony do a remastered or gold version of BOTT. Clinton Heylin believes the notes were removed because they refer to the original "New York" versions of the songs later re-recorded in Minnesota. Personally, I can't anything in them that is invalidated by the re-recording. Amusingly, the notes are reprinted unofficially on the CD insert for the new Blood On The Tapes bootleg. There is another (English) Peter Hamill who was the keyboard player with the Manchester prog-rock group Van Der Graaf Generator, and is now a record producer. Our Peter Hamill is not he.
